too. >> jennifer: stenny holder says that eric cantor told him that he was 99.9% sure that a sandy package would in fact make it to the floor. and this was before last night. what happened? >> these -- this relief package for the victims of hurricane sandy, focusing on the damage in new york and new jersey was expected to be handled last night amidst all of the fiscal cliff drama, and about an hour before midnight as far as we know, house speaker john boehner pulled the vote on this. he quietly said there was going to be no vote. and chris christie tried to get in touch with the speaker. he called boehner four times, never got a response. and really this was an 11th hour last-minute surprise. and that's why you saw so much anger. the worst of which were from republicans. and i think sort of the last-minute, surprising nature of this really set off all of these folks today. >> jennifer: so the question is why, andy? with not bringing that bill to a vote was that maybe boehner's way of reminding everyone that he is still in charge? >> there is also a shakespearean

minute. eric cantor did. stan hoyer among others not happy. >> i am deeply disappointed mr. speaker, and the people who have been damaged by hurricane sandy, including governor chris christie and governor cuomo, should be deeply disappointed and yes, angry, that this congress would adjourn without addressing the pain of our fellow citizens. >> bill: it is outrageous -- i have not been there personally but seen so much video of the horrific destruction in parts of new york and new jersey -- >> that is still there, yeah. >> bill: yeah, people still suffering, and the congress just basically saying, we don't care about this. >> yeah, it's just the house, right? because the senate had actually done some stuff, and had planned to come back one more day and deal with what the house passed and in the midst of all of this stuff at the last minute they just pulled it off of the agenda. and it was a bipartisan anger at the house leadership last night when that happened. >> bill: eleanor holmes norton representing the district of columbia will be joining us in studio abou

barack obama has a chance to do what eric cantor told bob woodward after he met him the first time, which is if he's pragmatic, if he comes to the middle, then he could lock us republicans up for a very long time. i mean, i think that's the great challenge for barack obama. >> yeah. >> can he do what he appears to be doing right now with john boehner? and that is upsetting a lot of people in his own base for the betterment of their party by saying we're going to raise it from $250,000 to maybe $500,000, go after entitlements and do it for the best interests of the country. >> he is a pragmatist. the first two years, it was such a strained situation. when we talked to him on wednesday, everything he said was about -- he wasn't saying government has to be bigger. government has to be smarter. government has to be better. it was like the lincoln line. this is a fantastic picture, by the way. >> that is adorable. >> joe, that's one of the pictures i was talking about. >> you're letting us know, these are all exclusive to "morning joe." >> they're exclusive to "time" and "morning joe." apparen

consensus. and at the 11th hour, you have eric cantor and kevin mccarthy, the number two and three in the house republican caucus breaking away. but who stands up and stands with boehner? it's ryan. it's ryan, the budget committee chairman. he could have done a lot to come back from the campaign trail and really try to assert himself against boehner. he didn't do that. he was boehner's ally. >> why? >> that really helped boehner at the end. why? because i think ryan long term is just like camp dadave camp. they're talking about the long-term tax reform is going to come on the debt ceiling in 2013 with the budget fight. you're so right on the debt part. but what they want to do now is lock in the rates. that was their argument in the caucus meeting last night. that was their argument on the floor. lock in the bush era rates, do what you can and move on. >> why did they break away from john boehner at the last moment other than it made a hell of a lot of good sense if you're actually conservative ideologically, you don't believe in adding $4 trillion to the national debt? >> i that i

on the house side. speaker boehner voting for the bill. and eric cantor voting against the bill. the house whip voting against the bill and paul ryan voting for the bill. this is a real split. >> it is. it shows the schism and a real good demonstration of why it was so difficult for speaker boehner to negotiate a bigger, grander deal with the president. he was unable to get his own deal through the house a few weeks ago, and the negotiated deal that passed with overwhelming bipartisan support. 89 votes in the senate, didn't get the majority of the republicans in the house to sign on. what you are seeing is the difficulty played out for everyone to see of how difficulty it is for speaker boehner to get these kinds of bills passed through the house. >> quickly, given the schism that you outlined, this is the last day of the 112th congress and tomorrow is the big day for john boehner. how is it looking for them? >> i think it looks fine for him. a lot of grumbling among folks. he allowed everyone to vote their conscious. no one got forced into voting for something they didn't want to. we avoided t
